Cant y Cant
Cant y Cant is a new book designed for Welsh learners full of fascinating information and colour pictures about a wide range of subjects including fashion, food, disasters, cartoons, sport, women and famous Welsh people.
There are 100 topics, all just a 100 words long. You can find a piece about me in the ‘Welsh Firsts’ section along with Gwynfor Evans the first MP for Plaid Cymru in Westminster, and Pryce Pryce-Jones a successful entrepreneur who was the first person to start selling goods through the post.
To assist Welsh learners there is a vocabulary at the bottom of every page and a range of styles from letters, dialogues and descriptions to help learners to get used to seeing Welsh on the written page. I’ve certainly improved my welsh vocabularly after just one page.
Cant y Cant by Alun Charles is priced at £7.99 and published by Gomer Press www.gomer.co.uk 01559 363092. It will be officially launched at the National Eisteddfod in Ebbw Vale during the summer of 2010 with a presentation by the author at the Welsh learners tent, Maes-D.
